Far Away Bird: Return to Theodora with Douglas A. Burton

Far Away Bird: Return to Theodora with author Douglas A. Burton


If you thought our favourite Texan was Beyonce, BOY do we have NEWS for YOU. You’re wrong: it’s Douglas Burton, the author of Far Away Bird - a narrative retelling of the life of Empress Theodora, from child to crown. 


And wow, is the book a wild ride. Today, we sat down with Doug to chat about Empress Theo and the many ways she shaped modern day life for all of us. 


We also discussed the way we tell stories about women, and how we tell stories of people whose lived experiences and cultural backgrounds are different to our own. 


Get your ears around it.


Tell us more! 


Find out more about Doug here. 


You can pick up a hard copy of the book on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Indiebound, Books-a-Million, and Powells.


Or grab it on your digital device through Kindle or B&N Nook.


More of a listener? That’s fair - this is a podcast after all! Far Away Bird is also available as an audiobook Audible, Google Play, Amazon, Indiebound, Kobo and Walmart
